Klasmann-Deilmann Šilutė sponsors local basketball team

For Klasmann-Deilmann, social responsibility is part of who we are and what we do. The Group provides support for selected charitable, cultural and sporting projects in various ways: financially, in the realm of ideas and on a voluntary basis.

In Lithuania, Klasmann-Deilmann Šilutė sponsors the local basketball club. For several years now, BC Šilutė has been playing in the Nacionalinė krepšinio lyga or NKL, the country’s second basketball league.

“For us, the decision to support the players was a no-brainer,” says Kazimieras Kaminskas, Managing Director at Klasmann-Deilmann Šilutė. “We’re committed to our region and keen to be community-spirited. In a small town like Šilutė, it’s important that different parts of this community help each other out.”

In this globalised world, our company is part of a diverse network ‑ including people, professional associations and other organisations, and the worlds of politics, culture and sport ‑ that covers a wide range of interests and needs. We take our social responsibility (which extends beyond our business objectives) seriously and do what we can to get involved, always with great dedication.

We support sports clubs especially at local level, i.e. in places that are home to our employees. And so we wish BC Šilutė continued success!
